Why do you need to understand _other_ peoples' perceptions, general
marketing trends, and Python marketshare in order to learn it?  You've
already evidently (from your post here and in other groups recently)
decided that you're going to go with Python -- at least that's what you
claim, I'm not entirely convinced -- so why aren't you learning the
language instead of all these other irrelevant things?

If you've truly decided that you're going to use Python, why aren't you
learning the _language_ now -- something you've been putting off for
years -- instead of hunting down all these red herrings?
